I would prefer if the SELinux changes were split into a separate
patch. I'm guessing John would probably want the same for the
AppArmor patches, but take his work for it, not mine.

Joe, in general I really appreciate the fixes you send, but these
patches that cross a lot of subsystem boundaries (this isn't the first
one that does this) causes unnecessary conflicts in -next and during
the merge window. Could you split your patches up from now on please?
